I know when I played Joe miller in Jeff City they had these placement screws on the signs and it does help a lot for someone's first time on the course and on blind holes. I found them very useful there

They most certainly are as LONG AS they are updated when pins move! ;D

What if you tightened the nut tight?  Who carries a socket or wrench while playing disc golf?  If there was vandalism I'd say it would be pretty minimal. Saw these on the Vegas courses where homeless and other people are all over the courses.  Still Love Wilbur Young's blue and red plates under the tee sign the best! ;)

for courses with 2 pins, not as big of an issue.  What are you going to do on #14 at Swope?  #4 at Rosie, #9 @ Rosie?

We have some pins with 7 realistic placements....having a dual option may work in some locations, but certainly not all, especially in KC.

double sided plates. Red on Top, Blue on Bottom and so on. Then the plate could slide up into a recessed area so only one side shows. That would be 6 placements could be accounted for with only 3 plates.

Too convoluted, I quit paying attention and threw my disc already.

Also Jack, I understand that there are some blind placements, but you can see all of the other placements on those holes and use deductive reasoning skills to know where the basket is. It's never been an issue for me at Rosie.

Save the screws.  No one really needs them, especially at Rosie.

Now, having extra baskets at certain pin placements?

Now we talkn...

I posted in the Board Discussion thread and am waiting a reply.  I think we all can agree that people who play very regularly are able to deduce pin placements..

Think about the beginners, out-of-towners, etc that could stand benefit from this.  We want people to say "Man, those KC courses had it all"

Not improving something because it has a solid reputation already isn't a great reason not to... hell, do we want to be the Apple of disc golf?

hah.. I kid I kid.  ..maybe

There are just a LOT of works in progress already at area parks and I think the majority of them at this time are more important than completely redesigning our tee signs.

I think the screw idea is "helpful" but cheap looking. To say it is an improvement would be a stretch. I think having something nice in place, like what is out at Wilbur, would be more attractive.

I do have a new method for creating TeeSigns that would look good and keep cost down if the club would be willing to fork over the $. This would include a way to show where the basket is. You still have to have the volunteers who change the baskets also change the signs.

I just want tee signs, any kind will do, down under.  I know.  Vandalism.   Sigh.
